This is a great reference you've built. Thank you for sharing this info with the world. Just picked up a Horizont. Appears to be made in 1970, but not exactly like the one's you've got on the page. Funny how there are so many variations.

Excellent research and work, and a fantastic resource. As a historian documenting the history of Russian diving equipment, I know how hard it is to make sense of many discrete data points and then to try to attempt to paint a broad picture by filling in the blanks. On a technical note, in my collection I have a camera not documented here: It is a START SLR from KMZ, but with the same 39mm thread short-mount lenses as was used for the early Zenit cameras. An undocumented find? I will forward photos of it when I am reunited with it (it's in storage now). I appreciate your many hours of researching, and look forward to your new work in the areas that now interest you. Cпасибо очень from the USA!

Correction: My ZK has number 000029. Is this somehow special?

Discovering this website today, I was fascinated to see the FED 4L, which I own, though not currently in active use. I had no idea it was named after the founder of the KGB. I would like to see a section in Russian/Soviet telescopes and binoculars, both of which I have owned, and found to be excellent value and quality. Visiting the Ukraine in September 1989 I was surprised to see that none of the Soviet cameras, binoculars, telescopes, monoculars etc that were freely available in Britain were not in sale in the large city of Rovno, now Rivne.

Thank you very much for this beautiful website. Excellent spot for a soviet photo gear collector. Would be nice if you could also cover camera accessories like flashes, lightmeters, rangefinders. But anyway, good job really, keep it up. Will definitely contact you if I find something rare here in Baku.

Thanks very much for putting this informative site up. I am seriously pondering getting myself a Russian Classic and there are so many to choose from it's hard to know where to start: Especially as without reading a site like yours, a buyer can't know if the camera and lens combo are standard issue or put together by the seller. You have cleared up a query I had simply by having the info available: So thanks again. I will repost when I have bought my camera Smile Cheers Tj.

As a proud owner/user of a Kiev 6C and a Kiev-10 your site is an obvious choice to find out more about these cameras and the history of other cameras that where produced in the fallen Empire. Keep up the work! Cheers, Stephan
